After two days of a busy schedule, King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain bid their hosts farewell and headed home. As part of the last leg of their visit, Felipe and Letizia visited the Angolan National Assembly, where they held a meeting with the president of the Chamber, Carolina Cerqueira. Letizia and Felipe arrived in sub-Saharan countries on Monday evening. This was their first-ever visit to the region.
Upon Felipe and Letizia’s arrival at the National Assembly, the National Anthems of the two countries were interpreted and a minute of silence was observed in memory of those who died in the revolution. Addressing the Assembly, King Felipe said, “Angola is a land of opportunities. After the period of economic crisis, aggravated by the Covid-19 pandemic, Spain positively values the reforms that Angola is carrying out to promote its economic development, diversify its economy and encourage business presence.”
The Royal couple met with the members of the Parliament and stood for the group photograph.
Then Felipe and Letizia headed for the President’s House where they met with the President of Angola, João Lourenço and the First Lady to thank them for their invitation and hospitality.
The Royal couple was given a short military send-off before they boarded and headed home.
Queen Letizia was wearing a red long sleeve satin midi dress from the Spanish label Massimo Dutti. We first saw the dress in June 2020 when Letizia visited the Prado National Museum in Madrid to launch the ‘Spain For Sure’ campaign. The red dress features a round neckline, long sleeves with button details on the sleeve and a draped skirt with a slit.
Letizia paired the dress with her red Carolina Herrera Essential slingback suede pumps that she also owns in beige, black, navy and fuchsia.
The Queen was wearing her Gold and Roses Needle earrings debuted in October 2022
and Coreterno ring.
